A Merry  Christmas to all!!! What you believe, how ever you feel May you find the Magic of this time of year!!

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Next year it's going to be different! Oh my, haven't we all said/heard that before. Well I am saying it again, of course, in my life every year is different, unfortunately the end result seems to be the same. I just don't know how to make the changes I want, but I know I want this time of year to have more meaning. I am liking the "Holiday Season" less and less as time goes by. As always to much to do, no time to do it, and trying to "please" too many people. I need to really sit down with myself and figure out what I want out of it, how to explain it to others and how to make the changes necessary.  I know alot of the "issues" I'm having with this year is missing the people who will not be physically with me, (My dad who passed this year, My daughter and family) but it's more than that, it's the feeling of "Obligation"; the having to do this, having to do that. I know, I know, we all have obligations but when there are more and more things one does because they feel they "Have To" it's something that has to be addressed. We shall see what happens, of course with the unknown changes that are to occur in the next year some of this may be a mute point.

Anyway.... What a crazy couple of months it has been, vacation, hurricanes, hospitalizations, dealing with all the emotions of the Connecticut tragedy, getting ready for the holidays, Phew!!!  I haven't had the time to update here. Hopefully I will get some photos and brief descriptions of some of the thing I done up in the next several days. I think I am done with my Christmas sewing and of course am already thinking of next year! So many things I want to Sew!!!! With the new year will hopefully get back to wardrobe sewing though not as completely as I thought but a month ago. One of the changes in my life has lead me readdress my sewing. I have decided to put off buying that new machine for at least a year (hopefully mine will keep on chugging). My hubby and I have joined a gym and signed up for personal training! I have wanted to do this for quite some time so when hubby suggested we do it I jumped on it! Going to the gym three times a week will cut into my crafting time but being physically active is so very important. And need to see financially how this will effect the budget before I spend the money on a sewing machine.

In three weeks I have gone from not being able to do a full body pushup to being able to two perfect and one almost!!! Go Me!!! The funny thing is now that I will have less time to sew I am going to need new pants. Oh well may have to buy some while I learn to fit and start making my own. Also plan to revamp some of the ones I have, a nip and tuck here and there. All to be decided next week or next year.

Well enough for now. To anyone reading this May you find the Magic of Christmas and May you hold it in your heart throughout the New Year!!

The pull of the moon

I've been thinking of late, the phases of my life or at least my crafting life. I'm very much like the moon, my interests waxing, waning then waxing again. Sewing, cooking, knitting, herbs are the most prevalent with others moving in and around them. Right now Sewing is at the peak, knitting has decided to make a comeback. I'm not a good knitter, super beginner at best. I know knit, purl, yarn over. Garter and stockinette pattern is my only forte and any "pattern" in the except all the way across and back my mind just doesn't want to wrap around. I've made a couple of sweater for the grandbabies and scarves as gifts. I have decided to make scarves again, Ruffle Edged Scarves, for several of my "girls". The idea started during the hurricane, what a perfect time to knit if I was knitting. Sitting in the dim lights of candles and lantern I couldn't read well nor do sewing. But knitting especially a very simple pattern would have worked. So it was in the back of my mind of late and then my boss and I were talking and the subject of these scarves came up; someone we both know made them and my boss liked the look. So... the pattern was sent to her and she gave it to me.
And now momma is in the hospital so I can bring it with me as I sit with her and knit. Timing is another of those interesting things to think about. Hmmm another case of synchronicity???

 Also making adorable little mittens ornaments for all the great nieces and nephews and perhaps others if I have time. Found the pattern online at and decided to do a slight variations of hers. 

Will post photos of both the mittens and scarves once I have one or two done. Can I get 15-20 mittens as well as 4-5 scarves done by Christmas??? We shall see.

Pillow for Kassie

 One of the many things I love about sewing and having a stash of many types of fabric is being able to do quick and spontaneous things. My son brought home a big basket for our cat Kassie. She's seventeen years old now and it's getting harder for her to jump up on the furniture. I thought for a moment and Oh I have the perfect fabric for a pillow to put in it. Went in, found a piece of gray fleece and ten minutes later Voila! a pillow for Kassie. That and an old T-Shirt of Phil's and she's a happy kitty!!!

Big Blue and The Rescue

Sewing can be humbling. It teaches you to pay attention to details, look before you leap, and think outside the box among many other things. I wanted a Fleece Jacket, found some great Blue Fleece and what I thought was the jacket pattern I wanted. Cut out the pattern, the fabric, sewed up a storm and then, wait, wait this isn't what I wanted. The hem line belled out and there was much to much fabric under the arms. HMMMMM. So muttered about, signs of frustration building, then my sister stopped by while I was walking around in the jacket trying to decide to just pitch it, finish it and donate it, or cut it up it a thousand little pieces!!!! She loved it, understood what I meant but still thought it was good. SO we took a closer look at the pattern, well, in some ways, the good thing was it looked just like the pattern, Why didn't I notice those things before? I think I was to focused on the front seams that I really liked. Hopefully that will teach me to pay closer attention to the WHOLE picture!! 
  Okay, so great, it looked like it was suppose to, I still didn't like the way it looked on me.  Now what??? Well I took a critical,look at the jacket while on trying to determine just what I didn't like. First the belling bottom, Thought about a number of ways to possible fix that. Had I noticed it sooner (like before I put the zipper in and hemmed it) I think I would have changed up the bottom and put in a drawstring (Dee's idea) but I wasn't going to rip out all that work so decided to attach a piece of 5/8 inch black elastic to the inside hemline. It helped!! not perfect but pulled it in just enough to take a bit of the belling out. Something still not right, I haven't the experience to do anything about the underarm but could possibly do something about the long slope of the shoulder. Decided to try a dart across the top front to back, Eureka! it worked and lined up with the great detailing of the front. Hey she good, she's good! LOL That in turned pulled the sleeves up enough that I didn't have to rehem them.
  The jacket still isn't exactly what I was thinking of but definitely wearable at least until I get around to making the one I originally had in mind.
  I probably won't use this pattern again for me, unless just the front with a different sleeve arrangement.  I wasn't happy with the way the directions had you do the pockets, so would do those differently as well. I know as I continue my sewing journey I will gain the confidence to read the pattern and say no I have a better idea and know how to implement it. For now I will value the learning experience gained by this one and glow a bit in being able to save it from the scrap heap!

Also learning how to set up my camera with it's timer so I don't have to wait for someone to be around to take the photos!!

Reading other peoples blogs has help me tremendously in accepting my mistakes. There's comfort in reading about the "Disasters" of those who seem to have so much more experience. I have to remind myself that while I have been sewing most of my life it's been on and off, and some of the sewers in my life were Get Er Dones, not taking the time to take their work past the obviously homemade look. They did fine but didn't grow, I so want to grow and need to relearn many things and undo some bad habits. Also must learn to be patient with myself. That I think will always be a hard lesson for me.

Made it through and a bit of a rant!

Wow where do I even begin. So very much has happened over the past several weeks, my head is spinning. I guess I will start with my thankfulness. I and mine survived!! Not only survived but came through with what in face of others have, I am calling minor inconveniences. It is interesting how one's perspectives can change in a flash. I had no heat nor electricity for eight days. The fact I had a home, running water, and a stove to cook on through all of it and Hot water for a good part of it; I was able to save most of the food in my freezers and refrigerator, I was one of the most fortunate ones. For this I am so so grateful.

 It wasn't until last evening have I been able to look to at photos of the devastation and destruction. I know these areas so well. I have lived in Monmouth County, New Jersey for all my life (except for a short spell in Va that I choose to push from most thoughts (don't most of us have those!). My heart wrenches with the sight. BUT "we" will not learn from this, some will but that collective "We" will not. Those areas so sensitive to the power of this storm and those that are predicted to come Will not learn.  Homes will be rebuilt in those same places, people will be allowed to live there and build even more, the beaches will be replenished at astronomical costs to the people at a time when so many have so little. It truly makes no sense to me. We cannot continue to be ostriches with our heads in the very sands that are very likely to be washed away again and again. I am not an extremist not an hysteric, I consider myself a relatively intelligent person. I do read, I do listen, I do minor research when I'm not sure of something. Our climate is changing. We are going into a new cycle of weather, what exactly will happen is unsure, but is has been shown the central and north eastern coasts will see more and more crazy storms for at least a number of years. Come on people can we find a little sense???

Enough of that for now It does nothing but aggravate me, SO I am going back into my cocoon. Back to my little world that I know and love. My family and my friends are safe and picking up the pieces. This I will focus on.

Out of Pan Into The Fire!

Aah yes, spend a week on the Outer Banks, NC with perfect weather and return to New Jersey just in time for what is building up to be the worst storm we have every had!! The intensity of the air is amazing. Took a drive down to the bay at Laurence Harbor last evening and and was mesmerized by waves bigger then are normal in the ocean on a calm day!! wish it wasn't dark I would have gotten some great photos. Now all tucked in nicely at home and don't plan on leaving for a spell! Besides filling every available container with water, digging out every candle around, flipping food stuff from freezer to freezer depending on use value, clearing all from the outdoors, and anything else I could think of to prepare for this monstrosity I did want any good little crafter would do, I made sure all my new fabric was washed and ready to play with!! Figure if we lose power I  can cut out patterns and material and there's always sorting to do. 
  Can only hope this isn't as bad as it is projected to be but the feeeling in that air says otherwise. I truly hate that Sara and the boys are so so far away and also dealing with this storm, Kevin is at sea but she has great friends nearby. I know they will look out for each other.

I wish us all well, Let's all be safe and be smart!!!
 Back and settled in from a great week on Duck Island, Outer Banks, NC. What fun! Paul and I where able to secure two three bedroom units and invited all in the family who could make it. We got there on Sat. Oct 20, followed by Karen and Ralph as well as Jeff, Amanda and Anderson. They stayed until Tuesday. Got to have three great dinners with them as we thought to let them have the time to themselves doing whatever they wished. We climbed a lighthouse (naturally) on Sunday.The Currituck Lighthouse on the northern end of the Outer Banks. What a view! Spending time with our grandchildren, children, sister and brother, Wild Horse Tour, playing on the beach, Miniature Golf, playing in the pool and many a yummy meal! Now that's a good life! Can only hope someday we can do it all again.

Received my first order from Fabric Fashion Cub. Very pleased all but
one should be perfect for what I planned with it. The one not sure is Black with autumnal colored leaves, very pretty and thought I'd use it to make a blouse but the fabric is stiffer than I thought it would be. It's 100% cotton but more like a Quilting cotton even though the description said Apparel. Going to wash it and see, it may become placemats instead!  

Now I need to figure out the best way to get organized, keep track of my stash and what each fabric is and how to care for it.

Looking forward making a blouse with this one.
  also picked up a Olive Green Gabardine to make Trousers. That should be an adventure. Taking that pant fitting class at Cratsy's, hopefully it will transfer to reality!

Also bought some Cotton Broadcloth in Wine for a blouse and some samples to check out for more trousers!

Oh and this beautiful piece that is bigger than I realized
(didn't notice it was 60 width!).
Think it will be a boxy style Blouse/Jacket and maybe a skirt.  Hmm this photo doesn't do it justice May have to take one myself.

Fun Fun Fun when I come from Vacation I can start playing!!!

M5933Funny what one finds when doing a bit of tidying! I had forgotten about a vest I cut out last winter just before life got crazy. So there I am cleaning out some cubbies and low and behold just sitting there awaiting. It' s nice to have well trained fabric, LOL So I spent a part of Saturday and Sunday sewing it up. I am so glad I found it. I love the way it came out. It's a lined vest, McCall's M593, which has since been discontinued. I used a brown microsuede with a cool thread design and brown sequins. Easy going together just two pattern pieces, front and back! I didn't add any embellishments, the fabric says it all!
(need to give my photographer a few lessons! LOL)

My only complaint was the hand sewing which is not my forte'. Guess I just have to practice more.  The good thing is I have enough fabric leftover I think I will make a purse and maybe even a little coin purse.

I should tidy that area a little more often me thinks!! Who knows what treasures lie within! LOL

May be buying a new a new machine soon. Starting looking and think I know the one I want. After vacation is soon enough to plan.

Okay, I have been thinking about a 'Sewing Plan" and I like it. I also have read in several blogs about a wardrobe challenge that was held. You had so much time to make coordinating pieces to develop a complete wardrobe. I believe it was 6 pieces in 6 months. Well I'm certainly not ready for that challenge but... I do like the idea of a coordinated wardrobe. Mine is a bunch of bits and pieces I try to match together each morning. So I'm thinking this would be a great starting point for a Sewing Plan. I should go through my closet first and figure out just what I have, what goes together, what actually fits and what I actually like and wear!!!  I do wish I had someone to help with this. Someone "objective" enough to give honest opinions and knows me well enough to know what I like (as opposed to what they like!) I need to recruit my sister to do some measurements with me maybe that would work for this also? All I need is time!!! hahahahaha.

I think a possible plan would involve:
   2 pair of pants
   2 long sleeve blouses
   2 short sleeve or sleeveless blouses
   1 jacket
   1 vest

As I start working with knits more I will add to that list
  Nice Knit Shirts in various sleeve lengths

Then I can continue to add to this as I go along making sure everything works together!! Gad what a concept!!  

In the meantime I'm taking those two classes at Craftsy:
  Beginner Serging  and Will be starting a Pants Fitting Class that I am really looking forward to as hopefully will start me off on "My Sewing Plan"
  Will be making a pillow for my grandson to match those curtains I made him.
  Have some mending and finishing to do

I want to make a Bra! That should prove interesting!!!  Have to see if Craftsy or Pattern Review has a class on that. Found a Tutorial online from Threads Magazine so can start with that when I get to it.

And I want to make a Raincoat!!! 

Okay so that should keep me busy for the next year or so!!! LOL

I have such a "Kid In The Candy Store" way about me! I become involved in whatever it is that has caught my fancy and I want I want I want!!!! lol Since I have been back into sewing I have discovered so many new things, blogs, websites etc etc etc. and I want to be a part of it all. I found a wonderfully dangerous(for someone like me) site called Craftsy, ( where there are online classes you can take on so many different things: sewing, baking, knitting, quilting, heck even weaving and spinning!!!  What's a gal like me to do! Step back take a breathe and oh heck dive in. I just finished one class (it was free!!!!!!) Sewing Machine 911, good info, great instructor, and have started another, Beginner Serger, Yeah I have one of those and it's high time I learned more than the basics about it. I have signed up for Pant Fitting Techniques as I would love to be able to make trousers for me that fit properly!! I have such a hard time buying them, my body does not conformed to any size out there! and there are so so many more I can't wait to take, we won't even get into the classes I'm drooling over on Pattern Review!! SO Away I go!!!

One of the blogs I read mentions a sewing plan, I love the idea of that, will have to take some time and ponder just what I want to accomplish and make a list. Ooooh I do so love making lists, hehehe. I know I want to set a couple of goals for myself and there are a number of things I'd like to make. I mentioned somewhere or to someone, wanting to, slowly but surely, replace my wardrobe with handmade items, I figure 50% in the next couple of years sounds fair. aah the decision to decide is where to start!!

Other year older! Happy Birthday to me!!! A lot of people complain about or ignore their birthdays and at a time so did I. Several years ago someone near and dear to me and my family passed on, he was only 54-55 From that time on I Celebrate my birthday, and the fact that I can have yet another birthday! Birthdays are blessings. Birthdays mean we continue in this life and I want to do that for many many many more years!!! So Happy Birthday to me!!!! Again and again and again!!!

I do have to say this year was especially fun and especially nice. Facebook for all it's craziness lets the world or at least my world know there is a birthday, every one of my "Friends" wished me a Happy Birthday in one form or another. Sure made me smile alot!! And because of the way I feel about birthdays I tried to thank each and every one for their good wishes. 
 My Birthday celebrations started with a lovely lunch with my dear sister. Then the day of all the good wishes, followed by a lovely dinner with my hubby and son. Next day Lunch with one of my good friends. Saturday found me on a ride on the Seastreak up the Hudson and a walk around Cold Springs NY with another wonderful friend of mine, that was followed by dinner with my hubby at Bahrs (a favorite haunt), Sunday a hike and talk around the cranberry bogs of Double Trouble State Park!  Wow now that's the way to spend a birthday!!!
 Now back to my real life!!! hehehe

A Bit Of A Twist!!

Okay I not only love to sew but I also love to "play" with Herbs. I make lotions, potions, teas, Aromagoodies. But today was the first time someone has asked me to develop something that stinks!!!  A good friend of mine is taking a class that is designed to bring awareness of the trials and tribulations of many different types of people using libraries as well as helping Library Workers learn ways to assist them. She is doing a presentation on Homeless People and how to help them and the employees with many of the issues that come up. She wants to illustrate the "conditions" of the homeless and others of misfortune and wants something she could carry on her that smelled rather, ummm, yuck! After going (sniffing) through my herbs I came up with a combination of Hops, Valerian and Horehound, yeah definitely not pleasant!!! She is going to add crushed Garlic and some Onions to the mix. I can guarantee  not many are going to want to stand near her!!!! And hey it should help keep Vampires away as well!!!  LOL

My Machine!

Okay so I'm watching an online video on sewing machines last evening ( yeah I know, I'm odd oh well!)  Anyway, the woman starts talking about Vintage Machines, and how they have a tension wheel on the outside where as newer machines have it on the inside. I stop , Wait a minute My Machine has the Tension Wheel on the outside!!! My Machine is Vintage???? So I had to look up the manufacturing year for My Machine - 1979!!!!  That's just a year after my son was born! WOW!! I guess I've had her for a spell eh!!  And I wonder why she acts up from time to time, LOL
 She still does the job though! Have been considering a new one just haven't a clue which there are so many choices out there!

I Love My Bag!

So I got this idea to make a Purse Style Backpack, went online to do a quick search and found this wonderful blog with tutorials! Heart of Mary: Just what I wanted, of course I can never leave well enough alone so did do a bit of tweaking here and there.

Don't you just love how you take take these items and turn them into something totally different and wonderful!! I fell in love with the fabric while at the store and knew it would be perfect for this.

The pattern has a pocket that goes completely across the bottom front, so first thing I changed was that. I made a deeper, narrower pocket that can hold my cell phone rather comfortably!

Got it all cut out and sewed away! Now the tutorial has you using metal slides for the straps but I couldn't find them at the stores I went to so decided to go with nonadjustable straps, which means I had to sit there and figure out how to do that! Came up with this.

Sewing the Front, Back and Sides went smoothly, got my straps in place and even a Grab Handle! The bag has a flap that fold over the top front and secures with a magnetic snap. That went on quite well I think.

Proceeded to make the liner and thought to add a D-Ring to the sides to clip a small purse or two to to hold cash, cards and whatnot.

 Thought it best to add a bit of extra security to the area so found a bit of scrap and there nicely sewn to inside of liner! Also added a bit of strengthener to the bottom of liner using a stabilizer from a falling apart shopping tote!

Was oh so pleasantly surprised how nicely the liner fit into the Bag. Has a drawstring to hold the top closed and I think it came out rather well if I do say so myself!!!

And here's the cute little purse I made to clip inside!!

Not bad eh!

A little bit of entertainment:  I have been reading the book "The 7 Secrets Of Synchronicity" (how I started reading it in the first place is it's own story!) Anyway, I'm in the chapters about Divination and come across a type called Stichomancy (Got to love that name, sounds like a fit to me!) This is a quick and easy form of divination in that while holding a book (any book) you think of a question or issue of concern,open the book at random and immediately point your finger to a place on the page (best done with eyes closed so as not to have visual influence), read what is written there and see if it "Illuminates" your question or concern.
  Okay this is definitely easy enough, what the heck, I decide to try it. Since I have this book in my hand it's the one I use. I focus on my upcoming trip to NC and how it will turn out. What I read under my finger is this sentence: "What began as a simple mundane trip to the grocery store was transformed into something magical!"  Is that not Wonderful!! and so very very entertaining!!! I cannot help but love when things like that happen, truly delightful! And now I am looking even more forward to my trip! LOL

For anyone interested I have been taking a class on Roman Goddesses. I get to research a Goddess, write up a paper then do a creative interpretation. I've had a lot of fun with this class and look forward to taking other Cultural Goddess Classes in the future. Below is the last in this class. 
Angerona is the Goddess of Silence, Keeper of Hidden Secrets among many other aspects.

  As with all my projects in this class, the idea develops with the research and writing of the paper. Angerona “spoke” to me (or should I say Whispered!) in the form of a Fabric Doll. While discussing the idea with a friend the color Gray was mentioned, in not Black or White but Gray – Secrets, Shaded, Hidden Meanings. I thought at first to embellish her in grays but while going through my fabric stash, my son’s college graduation gown (yes I save everything!) jumped into my hands. Perfect! Learning – Advancing – Commencing. Angerona is my last project of this class and then I will “Graduate.” The cloth became her body.
 My Fabric Dolls are usually a bit bigger but I wanted her smaller, so first I had to reduce the pattern, slightly reconfiguring the legs so the angle wasn’t as bent. Then I had to redraw her hand with one finger pointed. I traced the pattern pieces onto the fabric, sewed the seams and cut out the pieces using about an ¼ inch seam allowance. Turned each inside out and stuffed firmly.
  To draw the face, I used Pigment Ink Pens in Browns/Black/Red for Angerona. On other dolls I have made, I have used dry Pigment Paint and my own makeup as well as the pens.  
 Time to secure the arms and legs to the body, using Carpet Yarn and a long Doll Needle, running it though a couple of times. Secure the head to the body, I like to have it slightly cocked. I make the hair by “Crocheting” Fun Fur Yarn. I like that perfect stitches are not necessary in this, stick the crochet needle wherever and single or double crochet rather Willy-Nilly until you have made a Wig of sorts! Attach hair by tacking at random points to head.
 Dressing and accessorizing my dolls is always interesting, once I get the main idea they “tell” me what they want.  Angerona was no exception. I had something totally different in mind for her, more of a white toga style outfit, but as I once again went through my “Stuff” certain items cried me, me!! The sheer pinkish beige fabric, then the silver trim, which is actually the outside edging of a silver ribbon. I thought to have both hands up by her mouth but Angerona just wanted the one, Finger to lips, the other seeming to be pointing. I believe in letting my ladies “Speak” for themselves!

(Rather Cher looking!! LOL)

What a lovely day yesterday! Went hiking with Paul and Phil. First stop the Passaic Falls in Paterson, NJ. This is really an amazing place. The beauty of these falls right in the midst of downtown Paterson! Paterson is not a pretty city, unfortunately it has one of the highest crime rates in NJ. But the falls are fantastic!.

My lunchtime friend!
 This little guy decided I was the perfect spot to perch. He hung out on my jeans or my hand for a good ten minutes or so while we had a bite to eat!

Next stop South Mountain Reservation, Northern end to see the Hemlock Falls, or should I say UnFalls as there was just but a trickle coming down. Says something to the weather of late. Nice little walk though.

My DareDevil!

Then to the Southern end of the Reservation to see Maple Falls, again no water.

But the hike was fun in that someone placed Faerie Homes throughout the trail! How delightful to come across them.

One even had a chipmunk in residence! Felt good to get out and about. Been a while since we did any hiking. Will have to remember this place in the early spring.

Alec's Curtains

Alec’s Curtains

First item to make it up here is the curtains I made for my Grandson Alec. Hopefully the photos will make it up here as well.  I decided to do Lined Curtains, why because I don’t have enough challenges in my life! LOL  I have never made Lined Curtains so A First! Not having a pattern and I know I know I could jump online and find a gazillion tutorials I decided to wing it! Go Me I think!

After Washing, Pressing, Measuring (Twice) The Fun Begins..
  I made the Lining 2 inches narrower and 1 inch shorter than the Curtain. Turn under all edges, Marked Header and Curtain Rod Pocket.  Sew Side Edges (wrong side together) being sure not to sew where the curtain rod pocket is!!

  Find Top Center Curtain and Liner, pin together at center with liner slightly lower than curtain. Pin across. As the Curtain is wider than the liner, the curtain will fold in on itself at outer edges.
 Stich Lines across for Header and Rod Pocket. Press Side Edges. Hem. Since I love Topstitching; Top Stitch Sides! Voila!! Curtains! 

When They make it down to Virginia and get hung Hopefully a photo will be taken!!

That was funny!

So thought I would start a blog and have it focus mainly on my crafting stuff. SO I thought I could start one here and low and behold I already had! A number of years ago! Of course there is only one post and it is no longer relevant!! I crack me up! I am such a starter!! I probably have a half dozen or so blogs with but one or two posts out there in the Great and Powerful Web!! Oh well, so I don't have to set one up I'll just play here till something else catches my fancy and I totally forget I have it. 

It funny as just yesterday my sister and I were talking about this same thing. Again I am such a starter, I start lists, projects, routines, schedules, programs, etc. And I do it wholeheartedly!  Then comes follow up, and yeah well maybe we shouldn't go there!

Oh well Let's see what happens here!
